📍WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING TECHNOLOGY!
Plasma Skin Care is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to reduce the volume of excess skin. Low risk, minimal downtime and more affordable than surgery. The treatment is known for it’s success with Non Surgical Eye Lifts, Tummy Tightening, Neck Tightening and so much more.
The term “Soft Surgery” is used to describe the treatment because it delivers results similar to surgery, with no scalpel, stitches or bandages and minimal downtime. A minimally invasive procedure with much lower risk and at a more affordable price than actual surgery.
📍HOW DOES PLASMA TREATMENT WORK?
Plasma skin treatment is a relatively new innovation in the beauty industry but has been used for a number of years in Europe. The extremely accurate hand held device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its tip and the natural gasses emitted from our skin, to form a plasma charge. A small electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissues retract and tighten giving you more youthful looking skin.
📍WHAT IS IT USED TO TREAT?
Plasma is able to treat a number of imperfections without any actual cutting of the skin. It can be used for:
⚡️Eyelid Tightening, including under eyes and excess upper eyelid skin.
⚡️Skin imperfections, including skin tags and sunspots.
⚡️Improvement in the appearance of acne scars
⚡️Tightening loose stomach skin after pregnancy.
⚡️Lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
⚡️Jowls and Neck Tightening.
⚡️Knee Caps and Under Arms
📍HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
As Plasma Treatment is more than a simple tightening treatment (skin volume is actually reduced), the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of the treatment are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further ageing, but the positive results should last for many years depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after 8 weeks. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure.
📍HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin’s laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 8 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get better results. Appointments must be spaced out by 8 weeks.
📍WHAT TO EXPECT-SIDE EFFECTS & RISKS
Plasma treatment has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature and is done by a fully certified technician like myself. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment.
There will be small carbon crusts (little polka dots) in the treated area that will last 7-10 days before naturally lifting, revealing new pink skin beneath. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you on the day of appointment.
📍WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE?
‼️The client should be in good health at the time of the appointment, with no pre-existing health conditions. If the client displays signs of cold or flu the treatment should be rescheduled.
‼️Clients skin should not be inflamed in the area we are treating prior to procedure.
‼️Clients prone to keloid scars are not ideal candidates.
‼️Clients with diabetes, healing disorders or lymphatic draining issues should not undergo treatment.
‼️Clients with a sunburn should postpone treatment.
‼️Clients who have a history of Hyperpigmentation / Hypopigmentation are not ideal candidates.
‼️The client must not display herpes simplex (cold sores when working in the lip area) It is recommended they consult with their medical Doctor and begin taking the prescription 4 days prior to treatment and 4 days following treatment.
🚫If the client wears a pacemaker avoid treatment with electrical arcing.
🚫Clients who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not ideal candidates.
🚫Clients should have eyelash extensions REMOVED prior to treatment.
🚫This treatment is only recommended on Fitzpatrick Scales 1-3. Treatment is not advised for those with very dark skin. This is because there is a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) following treatment.
📍DAY OF TREATMENT
On the treatment day, it is recommended that no make-up is worn on the treatment area.
We ask that there has been no anti-histamine intake within the last 24hours‼️
A numbing agent such as Elma should be applied 45 minutes prior to appointment. When the treatment area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the plasma tip, spaced closely together. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating. Treatment time is usually between 30-50 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
Immediately after treatment the area may be red and mildly swollen with small carbon crusts (spots). You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 2-3 days. The carbon crusts will lift within 5 -10 days depending on the individual and area treated. Results gradually improve over the course of the following 8 – 12 weeks‼️
Following treatment you will be given thorough aftercare instructions to ensure that you see the best results. In the week following treatment (or until the treatment area has fully healed) an exfoliating wash, cleanser or moisturiser should not be used.
